Low Sodium Beef Jerky

For many, beef jerky is their go-to snack for road trips, after athletic events, and just when they’re feeling hungry. However, not all jerky is created equal. Low-sodium beef jerky, for example, is a great option for those who have to watch their sodium levels.

If you need to take care of your heart, or if you just want to start eating a healthier kind of beef jerky, here are a few reasons why you should eat low sodium beef jerky.

1. Protein-Packed

One of the biggest reasons that many athletes and others snack on beef jerky is because it’s packed full of protein. For athletes, keeping the amount of protein in their bodies is important because it helps them develop muscle faster.

Protein is the building block for many biological functions in the body. It builds muscle, allows hair and nails to grow longer and stronger, and can help boost your energy levels.

Low sodium beef jerky still offers that powerful punch of protein. It just also limits the amount of sodium that also enters your body.

2. Long-Lasting

Another reason that many people love beef jerky is that it can last for a long time. Some people like to stock up on snacks for the week. However, when it reaches the end of the week, they might find that their snacks are suddenly no longer edible. They may have spoiled.

That isn’t typically a risk that you run into with beef jerky. It’s dried meat, so the microbes that typically exist within the meat are killed. Otherwise, those microbes cause the meat to spoil.

With their removal, your jerky can last for months, if not years. While you likely won’t have your jerky waiting around for years before you eat it, at the very least, you won’t have to worry about it spoiling on you at the end of the week.

The same goes for low sodium beef jerky. Even though it contains less sodium, it still lasts the same amount of time as regular beef jerky.

3. Sugar

It’s common for people to believe that sugar is bad. However, a little bit of sugar isn’t a terrible thing. Different flavors like honey or chipotle can add sugar to beef jerky. Instead of being a bad thing, the sugar is actually a good thing because it can help restore your electrolytes after a workout.

Meat doesn’t traditionally have any carbs in it. When they add honey or something to the meat to flavor it, they’re not really adding any more carbs. Or, at least, they’re not adding in any more to the point where it becomes unhealthy.

So, you can enjoy your low sodium beef jerky without worrying too much about the amount of sugar that’s in it.

4. Low Sodium

The biggest perk of low sodium beef jerky is in the name. Where beef jerky can really become healthy is in how much sodium it has. Unlike sugar and carbs, sodium in beef jerky can negatively impact your health quickly.

For someone who is struggling to keep their cholesterol down or prevent sodium from clogging their veins, choosing a low sodium brand of beef jerky is essential. Having too much sodium in your body can lead to heart disease, cardiac arrest, vein disease, and other cardiovascular problems.

A low sodium beef jerky brand, however, keeps the amount of sodium to a minimum. So, you can easily eat a few sticks of the jerky and be perfectly alright. With all things, moderation is key.

Yet when it comes to delicious beef jerky, low sodium is a healthier choice.
